As far as I know, the only gauges they have for this gen is the black faces from the 08-09 and white face from the 10-11

the black face gauges are standard in the "s"models the light grey gauges are a trait of the se and up models, I dont know about changing the cluster colors thought I do know that these do have "my color"as an option.

My 2010 "S" has a silver gauge face as well. Personally I like it just like it is, my old ranger had black gauges that I changed to white. Overall I like the look of the newer Focus'

would like to see the finished outcome. May i ask, what are you looking for? the actual style of the gauge or just the night visual?

I have the black cluster in my 08. Been debating whether or not to custom do something with red since the car is red and the needles for the gauges are red.

My ideas are to either
A) Custom make a white face, with transparent purple numbering
B) make black gauge faces then have transparent purple numbering
C) Fit transparent purple pieces over the existing gauge face

(Hope that I explained that properly)

Im aiming for A, but I'll have to play it by year and see how everything is once i get in there... Plus I dont want too much purple, dont want to over do it.

The other thing I have been considering is that if I change the colour of the gauge numbers, it wont match the rest of the buttons in the car... Does anyone know if its possible to take the buttons etc off so i can change that shitty green colour? I bet it would come off with some acetone.

I will definitely post pictures along the way- so no worries! That way you will know if its worth the hassle and you can learn from any mistakes i may make :p

The gauges have always been one of my favorite aspects of the car, not sure why. They have a boy racer, need for speed look to them without being tasteless, IMO anyway.

When did Ford offer the "my color" option on Focus'? I would have opted for that as well but it wasn't available in 2010.

I think they're talking about the accent lighting that came with the SES models in 2010. Its just leds that light up the cup holders, foot wells, and rear foot panels..

I think so too. I'm pretty sure I got every upgrade available at the time.

I wish they had that on the 99-04 stangs. The drab green color is atrocious so I installed an indiglo overlay. ;-)
